Serbia “persuaded” to make “difficult decisions”
EU persistently demands from Belgrade a territorial compromise on the issue of Kosovo in exchange for European integration
It is essential to make some statements and ask some questions before proceeding with the rest of this article. Serbia always knew how to make difficult decisions, but there is a chance that globalists from EU and Washington will not like them.
- It is very ignorant to call the process of pushing for a quick resolution of the Kosovo and Metohija status “persuasion”. Frankly, it increasingly looks like sending Belgrade one ultimatum after the other. After EU and US “special envoys” we see France and Germany naming “specialists” of their own. Interestingly, nobody is representing United Nations.
- EU is not demanding territorial COMPROMISE. They are, as their American and British masters demanding that Serbia hand over Kosovo and Metohija. In no dictionary, I could find that could be called “compromise”.
- Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija is not under the control of Serbian authorities due to the ILLEGAL AGGRESSION by NATO in 1999.
- EU or their envoys are not authorised to offer Serbia “European integration”. They have no authority to make such a decision! The decision regarding new members is made by CONSENSUS of all countries that are already members.
“Forget that Kosovo is Serbia”
“We are sending this joint letter at a time of critical importance for security on the European continent and stability in the Western Balkans region,” the leaders begin their address to Vučić.
A paper sent some time ago was belatedly leaked to the press. The Prime Minister of unrecognized Kosovo, Albert Kurti, received a similar appeal, only with softer wording.
Macron and Scholz indicated in the letter that they have appointed their advisers Emmanuel Bonn and Jens Plötner in support of the EU Special Representative for the Western Balkans Miroslav Lajcak. And once again, they linked the “additional efforts” of Belgrade with the European perspective of the country
Officials at a lower level, such as MEPs, have long been setting the conditions straight. If you don’t recognize Kosovo, don’t join the EU. The resolution adopted in Strasbourg in July demanded not only to recognize the self-proclaimed republic, but also to join the anti-Russian sanctions. Otherwise, no European integration. Even in Kiev persistent voices were heard to “re-educate” Serbia.
An ultimatum to Serbia under the guise of negotiations
“ The letter of the two leaders, in fact, is an ultimatum written in sweet words and a clear signal to the leadership of the Serbian state that the political West expects a quick solution in accordance with the basic political and power principles of the EU and NATO line.”
Serbian historian and political scientist Aleksandar Zhivotic
In the context of the Ukrainian crisis, the leading EU countries are in a hurry to complete their “Kosovo independence” project. They are waiting for the definition of new European security architecture and are making efforts to pacify the territory, which they consider their zone of influence exclusively.
Over the past decade, European diplomacy has used a more cunning formulation. It is a “legally binding normalization of relations.” This is the same – the recognition of independence. But carefully chosen words were designed to stop the emotional reaction of the Serbs. In addition, this creates a situation of negotiations, not an ultimatum. After all, the process of normalizing relations involves concessions on both sides. In fact, Pristina rarely makes them. And, if they do during “negotiations” these are ignored and never implemented.
The broadest compromise represents the maximum autonomy of the Albanians. It is without recognition of independence, with the full protection of the Serbian population and cultural heritage.
It is time to move these “negotiations” to the United Nations. That is the best answer to the latest pressures and ultimatums.
